The World Cup is quite possibly the most highly anticipated event in the world every four years. This year, team USA has made the match worth watching with their amazing talent and sportsmanship.
During the Portugal vs USA game, there were 18,220,000 people who watched the game, beating the viewing record from the Women’s World Cup in 1999 (US vs China) that had 17 million viewers. Team USA kept its fans on their toes throughout the match, and it ended in the most unexpected of ways, in a tie, which was difficult to do against Portugal, a team that is known as one of the best when it comes to international soccer. It is important to remember that though the draw was crushing, unbelievable and unfortunate, the USMNT still has a strong chance for advancement, and as fans, we owe it to the team to give them continued support.
This Thursday at 12 p.m., there will be another match as the US takes on Germany, we all hope that they will continue to play just as great and lead us to yet another victory and advancement into the knockout round.
